New Eatery And Spa Open At Co. Galway’s Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate

A new casual dining eatery called Palmers Bar & Kitchen has opened at Co. Galway’s Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate as well as a new boutique spa called Glo Spa & Wellness, representing an investment of nearly €2 million.

Details

Palmers Bar & Kitchen is a contemporary bar and restaurant named after the Palmers, who bought Glenlo Abbey in 1897.

Glo Spa & Wellness is comprised of four contemporary treatment rooms, including a couple’s room, and a relaxation suite with a tranquillity terrace for guests.

Refurbishments Over The Past Two Years

Over the past two years, Glenlo has completed a number of building projects and renovations including a new bedroom wing, upgrades to existing bedrooms, and a refurbishment of guest lounges including The Tapestry, The French Room, and The Abbey.

The Abbey, which was built in the 1790s as a private church but was never completed at that time or officially consecrated, has been fully refurbished with its original stone cut walls, vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows remaining, and its interior being refreshed.

The property’s grounds have also had some work completed including the addition of new gardens.

Hotel General Manager Statement

The hotel’s general manager, Rónán O’Halloran, stated, “It was great to employ over 150 local trade professionals here over the past two years. It feels incredible to reopen after such challenging times, with amazing new additions and services to showcase.  Glenlo Abbey is constantly striving to enhance guest experience and the recent refurbishment process has given us the ability to truly offer a warm, personable and luxurious experience, which will compete with the very best of luxury hotels throughout the country.”

Continuous Investment Programme

Glenlo owners John and Marie Lally have introduced a continuous investment programme that includes yearly enhancements and developments, and worked closely with interior architects Millimetre Design on the property’s refurbishments over the past two years.

Small Luxury Hotels Of The World Portfolio

Additionally, Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate has also just joined the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio, which is a collection of over 520 of the independently spirited hotels.
